Mrs. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he completed his study of houses in multiple occupation in England and Wales published by his Department; what were his conclusions; whether he plans to further control and improve conditions in this type of accommodation; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Tracey

The report of the first stage of the research "Houses in Multiple occupation in England and Wales—a report of a postal survey of Local authorities" was published on 29 May 1986. The report of the second stage, a physical and social survey of some 550 HMOS will be published early next year. The response to the research will follow.
